    Let me tell this S.F. a true story in response to the Thread " It Sucks to get Old";

    I went to a very good friend's gun club one day and the first greeting was from a S.F lawyer " You are the guy that his wife bought him the K-80"! I asked him very politely " Where is Your Wife, I will get You one too"..........
    Now, does it Suck to Get OLD ?

    I think the reason no one has jumped in, bertoneernie, is that no one understands what you have written.

    I don't know what he is getting at either. However at my age getting older is better than the alternative.

    Neil I think he's trying to tell us someone owns a K-80, just thinking that.

    I have enjoyed repairing and restoring old radios since 1994. My first restoration was a 1938 3 band RCA K80 console

    I think it's him and not us. I haven't figured out what he was trying to say. Mike

    I think he meant that if he "services" the lawyers wife she'd be so happy that she would buy the lawyer a K-80. (since his wife was so happy with his "services") Am I on the right track bertonernie? Just my take on the confusing post.

    No, that can't be it. Hell, if that was true I would have 100's of K-80s. LOL

    Big Heap. Love that old upright. A friend of mine back in the late 50s bought a Stromberg Carlson upright at an auction. His opinion was it was the Cadillac. Sure had great sound, nice to look at too.

    Lifes what you make it, or as the guy that introduced me to Trapshooting used to say: Your only dancing on this Earth for a short time compared to all of eternity.

    Have a good day....Gerald

    I’m too young to understand this thread and my wife only gives me Berettas.

    I look forward to getting old.

    The ironic part of this is that she bought him the gun so he would go shoot, and we could have more time together!

    I think I just figured this out. The guy's wife has a very special relationship with the K80 salesman, and he is offering to introduce the lawyers wife to the salesman.

    If Mike could learn to shoot that K-80 his life would be a lot better.Everyone at Buffalo Creek trap club understands this thread and Mike takes a lot of good natured ribbing.

    Big Heap, I spent a lot of time listening to Dagwood and Blondie, The lone Ranger, The Shadow, Burns and Allen, and Red Skelton on a radio at my aunt's just like that. Good memories. Ben

    Now I feel like a fool because I read this thread all the way down to here, expecting to find an explanation of what Bert was saying in his story.

    Bert, PLEASE come back on and clarify this, inquiring minds want to know! (-:
